Els, Linda H, Marcelo, Mark, Blanca, Laura, and Gabriela endured the heat this past Saturday at the garden.
In addition to the usual watering, harvesting, and weeding (and trying to straighten some of the tomato and tomatillo plants!), Mark brought the weed whacker and worked on the garden borders. We also removed the lambs quarters, then Marcelo applied some newly sifted compost and used the broad fork to aerate the soil. Then we planted some greens that Els had--we don't know the English name, but Els tells us it's a mild and yummy green!
Food Pantry: We left two containers with cherry tomatoes (one red, one sungold) and several green peppers in the fridge for the food pantry (Molly, please let me know if you find them and whether they made it alright through Wednesday; if possible, please leave the containers in the toolbox or keep them somewhere so we can reuse them).
Susan won't be able to water on Mondays anymore but she'll be doing Sundays instead. Schedule for this week so far (please let the core group of gardeners know about any changes or if you're able to fill any of the missing spots):
Wed: Iris/Linda H
Fri: --Sat: Group
